Autopsy Shows Michael Brown Was Struck at Least 6 Times (All shots in front-witness lied)
New York Times ^ | AUG. 17, 2014 | FRANCES ROBLES and JULIE BOSMAN

FERGUSON, Mo. — Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was killed by a police officer, sparking protests around the nation, was shot at least six times, including twice in the head, a preliminary private autopsy performed on Sunday found.

One of the bullets entered the top of Mr. Brown’s skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when it struck him and caused a fatal injury, according to Dr. Michael M. Baden, the former chief medical examiner for the City of New York, who flew to Missouri on Sunday at the family’s request to conduct the separate autopsy. It was likely the last of bullets to hit him, he said.

Mr. Brown, 18, was also shot four times in the right arm, he said, adding that all the bullets were fired into his front.

-----snip---

Mr. Johnson said that he hid behind a parked car and that Mr. Brown was struck by a bullet in his back as he ran away, an account that Dr. Baden’s autopsy appears to contradict.

"“This one here looks like his head was bent downward,” he said, indicating the wound at the very top of Mr. Brown’s head. “It can be because he’s giving up, or because he’s charging forward at the officer.”"

Four times in the right arm. Wonder if he was right handed. His hands were huge, from the looks of the store robbery pics.

This means the guy named Johnson who was with Michael Brown in the Quik Stop robbery was LYING when yapping to the media after the shooting. Amazing... knock me over with a feather.

Now that's impressive. Gee, is it that easy for EVERY family to get a "famous" M.E. to fly in and give a personal autopsy/opinion? Good to know -- for any possible future reference, eh?

The shot to the top of the head is troubling. Not inculpatory by itself but curious.

Put Mr. Johnson in prison for a LONG time for helping cause all of the rioting and mayhem. Give the protesters a time limit to clear the streets and then shoot to kill until these ferals decide to quit and go home or go to the morgue.

Why?

If he was charging forward like a bull a shot to the head could well hit him there.

if the officer shot him predominately in the right side, it doesn’t seem he was trying for a kill shot until the last round.

I can imagine the kid charging and the cop shooting him in the arm and him not stopping or backing up so he used a lethal shot.

Well it sure establishes some of the witnesses had personal motives..

How could they see someone getting shot in the back while running away, if no shot was heard at the time they were running away?

Dr. Baden is a celebrity ambulance chaser. The ambulances even chase him.

He doesn't bother me....he doesn't need the money at his age and at the current stage of his career.

He's just an old fart who loves the media attention he attracts and all the dramatics of his various headline cases.

According to the article, he waived his usual $10k fee "because of the tremendous attention to the case."

The bullets did not appear to have been shot from very close range

Evidence markers which were traffic cones at the scene appeared to be within about 8" from the body...I would assume those cones were evidence markers for some of the bullet casings.

Not necessarily, the suspect could have been reacting, jerking or bending, tightening up from a previous round striking him.

Aptly named Crump, the attorney for the Brown family has his own spin on this:

“The sheer number of bullets and the way they were scattered all over his body showed this police officer had a brazen disregard for the very people he was supposed to protect in that community,” Mr. Crump said. “We want to make sure people understand what this case is about: This case is about a police officer executing a young unarmed man in broad daylight.”

Ri-i-i-i-ght. Four shots to the right arm showed that a Wilson was trying very hard to stop him without killing or injuring him seriously.

Possibly correct, but from the vid I saw, he was laying on the ground in the prone position.

No its not. He was falling forward at that point. Last shot was the well to do; night, night for the thug as the officer worked his way up the body during the brown’s “charge”.

Two to the head wouldn’t be unusual for a double tap head shot. One hit and he started going down second one finished the job.

“Was he on drugs?”

Ok, people need to back up and think about this. How people on would keep charging at a cop if even one shot was fired at them?
I’m thinking anyone who is sane and sober would stop after being hit once!
It’s totally obvious the kid was charging at the cop. Why else would all the shots have been fired??

Possible he was jacked on something. Cops usually have 9mm or 40 cal which is good stopping power but MB was 6’4’’ 292.

'In my capacity as the forensic examiner for the New York State Police, I would say, "You’re not supposed to shoot so many times,"' Dr Baden told the New York Times.

Nonsense. Shoot until the attacker goes down.

am sure you know though? that his wife was on HLN nightly prior and during the Zimmerman trial. She tried and convicted him before the trial, and Baden himself also.

His wife was just taking the liberal position out of personal hatred, so am sure she will feel the same way towards this poor policeman.

Am sure that he probably shares her feelings?
